AG Ellison stated:
The result of this case is critically vital, however by itself, it’s not sufficient. My hope for our nation is that this second offers us pause and permits us to rededicate ourselves to the actual societal change that will transfer us a lot additional alongside the highway to justice. I’m not speaking in regards to the variety
of change that takes a long time however actual change, concrete change that actual individuals can do now.
I’m speaking to lawmakers. At this historic second, there’s a lot laws across the nation in metropolis councils, county boards, state legislatures in congress that’s nonetheless ready to be handed. If these payments had been handed, they would make the deaths on the arms of legislation enforcement officers much less possible, would enhance police-community relations, would restore belief, and, subsequently, cooperation, enhance the lives of officers who wish to defend and serve and make everybody safer.
Each one among these payments at each degree of presidency is crucial for serving to our households, our legislation enforcement officers, communities, and the nation heal. Above all, Congress has nonetheless not handed the George Floyd Justice And Policing Act. I name on leaders and members of Congress to cross the most effective and
strongest model of this bill that may be handed and to cross it now. President Biden referred to as on the congress to cross this bill. It should be handed. Lives are relying upon it. It’s simply that easy.
There’s a policing downside in america, and earlier than Republicans begin screaming about defunding the police. Nobody is speaking about leaving communities unprotected, however as an alternative actual reform to revive belief within the police and make communities safer for all.
Justice was delivered for George Floyd immediately, however the one option to ship justice for all the harmless African Individuals who had been killed by the police is to cross and the George Floyd Justice In Policing Act into legislation.
